The National Institutes of Health (NIH), a part of the U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services, makes important discoveries that improve health and save lives. It is made up of 27 different components called institutes and centers.
It has two major divisions: extramural and intramural. Extramural NIH supports research and training on institutions and universities across the nation and the world. The NIH Intramural Research takes place on NIH campuses (the main campus in Bethesda, Md., and also North Carolina, Arizona, Michigan and Montana).
Intramural training opportunities – including summer internships for undergraduates, undergraduate scholarship program (UGSP), post-baccalaureate programs, graduate and postdoctoral training – will be discussed at the event, as well as tips for successful applications.
